The Reading Geological Society (RGS) is looking to reach out to the public to help people understand the importance of geology.

The society organises lectures, field meetings, museum visits and workshops for its members.

The group also supports schools and other organisations by attending science days with geological games, specimens and teaching aids; providing speakers to talk on various topics; providing stalls at local events; leading field meetings and holding meetings which are open to students, teachers and technicians at the University of Reading.

The society is calling on any other schools or organisations that have an interest in geology or earth science.

To find out more, get in touch via the website.

School Rocks! is a project funded by the Geologists Association and delivered by the Reading Geological Society.

See for further information.

Lectures are held on the first working Monday of each month in the Sorby Room at the Wager Building, The University of Reading.

Guests are asked to arrive by 7.45pm for 8pm start.
